WTF? This is Texas, right? This does not make me happy. Although it's probably punishment for having SO enjoyed the warm balmy weather outdoors today. I shouldn't have reveled in it, should I have?
[sigh] I am just not a winter person, I suppose. Give me tropical warmth any day, and you snow people can keep your white cold death.
